#PaintTipTuesday [015] Color Trends

As with fashion, food, and the weather – colors trend from season to season. Although we’re already at the halfway mark of 2015, we’d like to revisit the Benjamin Moore Color Trends of the year. The good thing about being positive thinkers over at Exeter Paint, means that we STILL have six more months to give our home a fresh start whether it’s new paint or adding a wall covering.
